Guys and Gals, I have no formal music education past High School and have come across a notation that I don't understand. Can anyone help me? Here's the exact scenario: It's a march in Cut time The measure is a 1st space half note (F) with a diagonal line across the stem from top right to bottom left and 4 dots under this note. To fill out the measure you have a 1/4 note (F) and then a 1/4 rest. What do I do with this??? Anyone?
